I sat down with Pravin Halady, product manager at NodeSource, to discuss why enterprise developers might need a safer and more secure version of Node.js and npm and what it’s like running a business where your biggest competition is the creator of the product you sell.
Getting Started With NodeSource
After the call, I had a brief experiment with the software to see how well it worked and how easy it was to replace default node and npm with it. I found a couple of small, confusing points. For example, when I clicked ‘get started,’ I ended up going through a billing/trial setup that didn’t make it clear what to do next. So, I had to click back on the main logo to find installation instructions.
